Mudroom to Plantroom
For the last three years the run down mudroom at the back of my house has been a junk collection spot for various outdoor equipment, camping gear and grilling accouterments. I would cringe every time I took the dog out back looking at the various plie of stuff that really should be well organized in the basement storage.
Here is the completely EEEK-worthy before shot of the room.
This was taken in early April when I had trays full of vegetable seedlings crawling over every surface and well, other piles of "treasures" that needed to find a proper home.
Given the south-west location and the massive amounts of sunlight I knew this room would make a great makeshift potting shed/plant room. Taking into account my growing obsession with growing things, I knew I needed a game-plan and decent space to work in before Spring was in full bloom.
Nancy-dude helped me move a wayward vintage vanity (that has been sitting in my garage for the past year) into the space after I sorted and cleared most of the junk.
So here is the new space:
It is still a work in progress as plants continue to rotate out and into the ground. The vanity needs some new knobs and a good polishing. I have been using the cutout portion of the vanity as a herb drying surface or tabletop as needed. I found the unused glass top in the basement and it fits nicely over the top to make for added plant surface.
The lattice wall rack is perfect for hanging various tools and chords. I added some smaller hooks for smaller objects across the top and s-hooks loop nicely into the lattice to create more wall storage as needed.
I'll post more pictures as things continue to change in the space. I love transforming forgotten areas into something a little more grand than their current state.
Now, onward to the next space to remake!
